Books and magazines

Can anyone give me an idea of where to pickup good books and magazines on tandems. We are getting our first tandem and want as much info as possible.

R&TR Magazine

Howdy from Tucson!
Recumbent and Tandem Rider Magazine is a good source and best of all it's FREE; check some of your local bike shops.
Browsing the Internet, of course, works; as you have already found out!
Good luck!

I also liked web site too (actually we ended up buying our tandem from here - great service and very helpful - worth driving the 3 hours).....

While you are probably going to do this anyway, make sure you go to a bike store that has several brands & styles of tandems. Certain features that I thought we would want turned out to be a hinderance and certain models had a better fit/feel than others. First hand test riding is an absolute must IMHO.

Good luck! We love ours!
